About the restaurant:
If there was an award for the most distinct restaurant design of the year, Otus Supply would win it by unanimous decision.
Built from the ground up, the sprawling, 10,000-square-foot building includes multiple dining rooms, two bars, a live music venue and a large open kitchen. Nearly every surface has been touched by an artisan, from leather walls in one of the dining rooms to the colorful owl murals in the "garage" area. (Otus is the genus of owls.)
The result is highly original and never fails to elicit reactions from guests, mouths agape as they walk through the circular passageways straight out of a Tolkien novel.
The menu typifies a New American small plates restaurant with Italian underpinnings, perhaps most evident in the selection of thin, sourdough-crust wood-fired pizzas and trio of pastas. That doesn't mean recipes are straight from the Boot, though. The whole Indianbrook trout, for example, calls to mind Russian holiday feasts with its combination of fish, dill, potato, and little jewels of salmon roe.
